Steve Senes...remember the name...you'll hear it again.
Here's my friend Steve Senes, with a song from his homemade album. Steve plays all the instruments on his album, and plays them like no one else can. He truly is a fantastic musician.
You will no doubt hear of Steve again real soon. You see, Guitar Player Magazine has picked Steve to be a finalist to compete for it's "Guitar Superstar of 2009", a annual contest they hold that draws from hundreds of entries to decide the best guitar player of the year. Steve will soon fly to San Francisco to perform against 9 other guitarists to determine who is the best of the best. To be picked to compete as a finalist is a fantastic honor in itself, but to win it, who knows what fame & fortune it may bring.
Listen to this video n' you know why I THINK IT'S NO CONTEST.
Anyone who deserves such a honor is Steve, who is one of the nicest guys I ever had the pleasure of pickin' with, and especially coming to know him as a good friend. It will be a wonderful thing to say "I knew Steve back when..."
Good luck Steve, ...go show 'em how it's done...
